(Blogger’s Note: This entry is hopefully to be a reoccurring feature on the Criminal Justice Forum, highlighting the car theft-fighting abilities of Bremerton Police Officer Dave Hughes, known throughout the county as one of the best in Kitsap law enforcement at finding stolen cars.
However, I am open to posting all types of crimefighting expertise. Please don’t hesitate to send me an e-mail or write an entry of other accomplishments that can be posted too.)
Dave Hughes, a Bremerton officer who we’ve written about on several occasions – lately for his uncanny knack for finding stolen vehicles – found another Monday night.
While patroling the 100 block of Lafayette in Bremerton at about 11:30 p.m., he remembered seeing a 1976 blue Ford pickup on the “hot sheet” – local law enforcement’s list of the county’s “stolens” – back in April.
Sure enough, it came back stolen and the owners were notified. Add another notch to Hughes’ already lengthy list.
